About Us: Bridging Gaps, Building Futures
The Perry Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in Northwest Washington, D.C., dedicated to serving thousands of adults and youth every year. The Perry Center uses a collaborative, comprehensive, and integrated approach to social services, economic empowerment, and youth development.
Our mission is to apply these approaches to alleviate the conditions of poverty in order to help ensure positive outcomes for youth, adults and families within the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, with particular preference to its defined service area.
We envision building a community of people residing in decent housing, receiving living wage incomes, and living in clean, safe and caring communities that can provide a model of community transformation for the future.
Our mission is to guide clients to realize their goals and aspirations and have better lives and brighter futures for themselves and their families.
